Pope appoints administrator for Jalandhar diocese
Sept. 20, 2018
New Delhi: Pope Francis on September 20 appointed Retired Auxiliary Bishop Agnelo Rufino Gracias of Bombay as the temporary administrator of Jalandhar diocese in the absence of Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who is now in Kerala facing a sexual abuse case.
“Our prayers accompany Bishop Gracias as he takes on this responsibility,” says a press release from Cardinal Oswald Gracias, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India announcing the appointment.
The Vatican acted on Bishop Mulakkal’s September 16 request to the Pope for temporary relief from his episcopal ministry.
